Shido Lithium Motorcycle Battery - LTX9-BS LION
Customer Product Reviews
New Battery for my precious Bandit.
My poor Bandit wouldn't come to life. I knew that the Sportbikeshop would get it singing a good tune again and ordered the new Shido Lithuim battery under advice from your helpful chaps. The battery was light and easy to fit with easy to tighten clamps. Sure enough when fitted it struck a beautiful note when struck up. It also came off choke quicker than normal due to a good strong 12 volts supply. My neighbours all agreed they had missed the sound especially on a Sunday morning .
Best option available
I'm loyal to these batteries because they're cheap, lightweight and haven't been too fragile to being ran flat and recharged. The charge indicator is reliable and overall the best option for any bike. I'm told they like being warmed up before cranking so running headlights for a few seconds before turning over is advisable.
Standard acid battery in the bike was on its last legs and wanted a lithium battery for a while so decided on the shido. Great but if kit, super light (feels fake/empty) and the bike cranks harder and starts easier so win win. The led battery level indicator is super helpful too, saves having to get the multimeter out. Great price and service from Sportsbikeshop as always too, had it in my hand the next day!
Shido lithium battery
Fantastic battery very light weight so far this is one of the best battery's. I have bought a little pricey but worth the extra if the voltage dose drop no more than five minute on the lithium charger an your good to go it CAN NOT BE CHARGED ON A STANDARD CHARGER NOR LEFT TRICKLE CHARGED FOR LONG PERIODS
Very light, nice bit of kit
Mine needed to be charged before hand unlike some of the previous reviews have experienced, no biggy. Charged and bike starts beautifully now. The test light is a really nice addition and I was really impressed with just how light this battery is. I will be buying another Shido Li-ion battery when I need one next.
Bought the Shido to replace a Yuasa PB battery theatre was killed off by the recent Siberian weather.
Never had a lithium battery before and the difference in weight between this and the Yuasa is shocking. The Shido almost feels like a toy but once fitted it's apparent the Shido is anything but. My bike (2006 ZX6R) fired up so fast, even though it had not been started for 2 months. The Shido even comes ready charged and you can check the battery status using the status button on the top of the battery.
The only negative is the Shido didn't come with a nut and bolt for each terminal so I had to use the ones from the old battery. This is why I gave the battery 4 stars (along with the fact I cannot comment on the longevity).
One of the most cost effective weight savings you can make to your bike. Bargain!
